Salmonella outbreak linked to Mexican papayas up to 141 cases

Centers for Disease Control said OH was one of three new states reporting this week, in an expanding outbreak that started earlier this month. Forty-nine people have been hospitalized nationwide since the illnesses started in mid-May.

The 66 cases in the bi-state area account for nearly half the 141 cases nationwide, and the 26 cases reported in New York City are the highest of any locality, officials said.

Thirty-two more illnesses have been counted in the salmonellosis outbreak linked to maradol papayas from the Carica de Campeche farm in Mexico.

Cases in NY almost tripled to 36 since the last report on July 21 and New Jersey cases have more than doubled to 26.

Papaya traced to the Carica de Campeche farm in Campeche, Mexico, appears to be the likely source, the FDA said Monday. On July 19, Maryland reported that some samples of Caribeña brand's yellow Maradol papayas tested positive for salmonella in its preliminary examination and warned consumers to avoid consuming the fruit.

HLB Specialties, a US papaya importer, released a statement Friday that emphasized the differences between brands, varieties and countries of origin.

"The outbreak is limited to one specific grower in the south of Mexico, Carica de Campeche, and the brands they distribute". If consumers aren't sure if their Maradol papaya came from the Carica de Campeche farm, they should ask the place of purchase. When in doubt, don't eat it; just throw it out.
